Australian Pink Clay Mask Review – Cruelty Free

January 23, 2018

in Beauty

I am always on the lookout for good skin care. And I've managed to come across some great skin care products over the past few years. However, I had not really found a mask that I liked. I have seen results from peel off masks, but really the ordeal to peel off the mask usually isn't worth the results. Most masks I have tried I just don't see any results at all.

Alya Skin contacted me to see if I would be willing to try their Australian Pink Clay Mask. Of course I agreed, but I also told them that my review would be completely honest – even if I didn't like the product. They were ok with that and sent me the mask.

One thing I appreciate right away is the packaging is plastic. I can't tell you how many products I have destroyed because they are in glass bottles. And the packaging is simple. I appreciate that too. 

I gave this product a try Sunday night. It had been a day. Ryan has 4 herniated disks in his neck and a pinched nerve. So we spent half of Sunday at the ER. And I had barely slept in 3 or 4 days. My skin was looking rough and tired.

See. 

The Australian Pink Clay Mask is, in fact, pink. But it doesn't smeel pink. It does have a slight odor, but it wasn't noticable until I stuck my nose right down next to the jar. It had no smell on my face at all.

I had high hopes for this mask after looking up the ingredients: Kaolin, Bentonite, Aloe Vera, Vitamin A, Vitamin E, Witch Hazel, Liquorice, Pomegranate, Mangosteen, Rosemary, Kelp, Extract organic, CI 77491, Benzyl Alcohol, Phenoxyethanol, Dehydroacetic Acid, Lactic Acid and d-Limonene

It has some stuff in there that should be great for the skin.

The website claims, "Kaolin clay removes toxins, pollutants and nasties from your skin. Helps to remove pigmentation clusters from your skin's surface, as well as stimulate regeneration of skin cells.Reduces skin inflammation and assists in removing eczema and acne. Contains antioxidants that are amazing for your skins health. Tightens your pores and gives you smooth skin. Provides anti-aging like effect and tones the skin. Speeds up the healing of pimples. Detoxifies your skin from all the nasty pollutants that come in contact with our skin, keeping it fresh and healthy."

The mask went on easily and felt soothing to my skin. I always apply masks with a flat foundation brush. I think it gives a more even application and I don't get mask all up under my fingernails. 

I waited the recommended 10 minutes (ok 12 because I got distracted playing bingo on my phone) and took the mask off. It did come off with minimal scrubbing with warm water and a wash cloth. It did not stick to my hair in the places I always seem to get mask in my hair. Very easy to remove from hair with the same wash cloth and warm water.

I was actually amazed at the results. 

My skin looks healthier. It doesn't have that tired ashyness. It looks more hydrated, but it doesn't feel oily at all. Even oily girls could use this mask. My skin doesn't feel tight. It feels smooth (smooth for 40 year old skin). I actually am going to start using this in the morning before I put my makeup on. It just made my skin look so healthy that I want to see the results during the day and not while I'm asleep.

At $39.99 a jar this isn't a cheap mask. But it isn't that expensive for a mask that works. I have tried masks that cost two to three times as much with less product in the jar that didn't work at all. I am just so impressed with this mask. It lived up to every claim from their website.

I am also impressed that this mask is cruelty free. In fact, all Alya Skin products are cruelty free and vegan friendly.

I highly recommend giving the Australian Pink Clay Mask a try. You can buy it here.
